I wish I didn't read stuff like this. It just makes me angry.
This is by far the most (and possibly only) compelling explanation for why and how inequality is bad for society that I've seen.

The other morning when I was pulling into the parking garage at work I had a longer than usual conversation with the security guard that was stationed there. We usually have a quick chat but this particular day was different. He mentioned he saw my picture on our intranet site for the Creating Change marathon we had and asked what it is that I do. I always hesitate when I'm asked this by non web people because they simply don't understand what I do. So I gave my standard reply - "I'm a Web Producer, I work on a team that builds websites." His eyes lit up and I could sense what was coming next. "Oh really?" he replied, then went on to explain that he has 100,000 photos from Africa (he's from Africa - that was a topic of another quick conversation one day) that he wants to display on the web and asked if I could help him build something to do this. By this time someone had pulled in behind me and was waiting for me to move on so I didn't get a chance to reply other than I'd give him a recommendation (which will be Flickr) next time we talk.

This whole story is a classic example of the graphic below (though I'm not a designer). How many others in the web development field have experienced this?

If true this is really disturbing.
Huh, this is interesting. I'd be curious to see if there's any truth to the assertion that the reason manufacturers are doing this is to hide the fact that their honey is coming from China.

Potential environmental and health issues aside, I do find it very disturbing that we can't necessarily trust the labels on our food.

One last clip from yesterday's Punkin Chunkin. (I wish there was was a way to add all these clips in one post.)
